had something weird happen
« on: March 30, 2018, 02:39:17 pm »

hey overseers, two quick questions

year 1059, pop 40, never raided or did anything hostile. started the world at war only with local small gobo civ. Some time recently i looked at the civ screen and im now at war with all known non-dwarf civs. Caravans stopped coming is what tipped me off. Any ideas on why were suddenly so un-popular?

the second question, when i look at the civ screen i see two dwarf civs, one is my home civ that lists my baron, and the other has my expedition leader, and all other positions filled by my dwarfs. I appear to have dwarfs from two differnt civs, one is my native home civ, and the other seems to have been created at game start. Is this odd? i didnt want to go through the trouble of taking pictures if this is normal. Again ive never raided or left my map in any way.

It sounds odd. Legends mode ought to provide info on what happened.

Check the civ screen after you get your first meeting with an outpost liason, to see if there's any news or rumors. Maybe your parent civ decided to start a bunch of wars?

In the civ screen, one is your civ, the other is your group, lead by your expedition leader. It's completely normal. Should be indented to make that clear. Maybe your tileset is being weird.

Wars start. The world doesn't revolve around your fortress. You need to check Legends you find out what's going on. Or try to work it out from the news on the map screen.

Well, the world only stops ´turning around your fort when you let it ;) Still though, world activation and the new civ screen is awesome!
